Israel Concludes Lebanon Operation After Discovering Last Tunnel

(Bloomberg) -- The Israeli army said Sunday that it has completed the operation it launched in early December to detect and disable underground tunnels that Iran-backed Hezbollah militants dug from Lebanon to infiltrate Israel.

On Saturday, the military located the last of the remaining tunnels that extended into Israel and will destroy it in the coming days, it said. In all, it has announced finding six cross-border corridors.

The military said it is still monitoring several locations where Hezbollah is digging underground passages that have yet to cross into Israeli territory.
